"In these four days we will have to rest, recharge our batteries and go back to training with determination," Gyasi said.
 
"At the resumption, we will try to snatch the first three points in our stadium. We will play for salvation until the end, this first phase of the season has not gone bad at all.
 
"We are out of the relegation zone and therefore it means that something good has been done so far. "
